As The Wolf Among Us 2 eyes up a 2023 release, resurrected developer Telltale Games has assured that newcomers to the series won't need to have played the first game to enjoy the upcoming sequel to the choice-driven narrative adventure.

Based upon the Fables comic book series by Bill Willingham, The Wolf Among Us saw Bigby Wolf and Snow White getting to the bottom of a grisly mystery in Fabletown. The follow-up will see Bigby returning as protagonist, but if you haven't played the previous episodic series, then a recap will help get you up to speed.

“We strive to design our narratives so they can stand on their own, Telltale Games CEO Jamie Ottilie explained in an interview with Edge magazine (via IGN), although he still hopes that new players find the time to play the first The Wolf Among Us before playing the new game, stating that “the opening of the first episode sets things up in such a way that the player understands how the characters got where they are now.”

The Wolf Among Us 2 is due to launch sometime in 2023, while Telltale also has a game based on The Expanse in the pipeline.

  • So glad this game is back on its feet.
  • Hopefully they're sticking with the progression related achievements. I hated replaying it just to pick up an achievement just because I didn't choose the right option.
